With an eye on greater payload and capacity, Isuzu has added an F Series offering to its tipper line-up.

Already covering an expansive gross vehicle mass (GVM) range from 4,500kg through to 11,000kg, the Isuzu Trucks tipper range recently introduced a significant step-up in the form of the FSR 140-260 Tipper, with a GVM of 14,000kg (derated to 12,000kg upon request), and a gross combination mass (GCM) of 20,000kg.

Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) national sales manager Les Spaltman says the recent addition to the tipper range is a direct response to customer feedback.

"We’re extremely proud to promote this F Series model within our already expansive Ready-to-Work tipper range," he adds.

"As always, we spoke directly with our customers, and the key message was clear—greater payload, greater capacity and longer body length.

"Specifically, our customers wanted a robust tipper body that could easily float a typical medium-duty excavator to and from jobs.

"At 4.4 metres long the body on the FSR 140-260 Tipper delivers on this, along with a 7.8-tonne payload and 5.2 cubic-metre load capacity."

The FSR 140-260 Tipper is powered by Isuzu’s 6-cylinder, 24-valve 6HK1-TCC engine, producing 191kW (256hp) at 2,400 rpm.

"Our popular six-cylinder 6HK1 engine is very effective in this GVM class and is set to serve the tipper application extremely well," Spaltman says.

"The 6HK1, coupled with Isuzu’s proven MZW-6P six-speed manual transmission bodes economical and efficient operation on all fronts.

"This is a very sharply specified truck, with some smart features such as an integrated lockable toolbox, yellow safety steps and grab handles for operator ease of use, as well as all the expected safety features like Anti-lock Braking System, Anti-skid Regulator and Hill Start Aid."

All Isuzu tippers come with standard body lock-down hook, further securing the tipper body and its load at all times.

Shovel racks, rope rails and a two-way tail gate with drop sides round out a fit-for-purpose package.

All Isuzu RTW trucks are backed by the factory, with a three-year warranty covering both the truck and body.

"We’ve been looking to expand the range for a while and plan to keep its evolution ticking over for some time," Spaltman says.

"Given the level of infrastructure work currently needed and underway across our major cities, we believe this heavier F Series tipper model will tick a lot of boxes, especially for the construction and trade industries."
